Although this is a history of events, it's a personal history, with the various sections being individuals describing what happened since they were actually there and participating in the events. The personal involvement always makes things more interesting.

The book covers the following topics: Pearl Harbor, Bataan, the Sundra Strait; the Battle of Midway; New Guinea; Guadalcanal; PT boats; Tarawa; New Britain; Saipan; Guam; submarine vs. destroyer, Leyte Gulf, and Iwo Jima.

Searing first-hand accounts of American, British and Australian combat experiences during World War II, Pacific Theater of Operations. Most were written within a few years after the war. Highly recommended, outstanding original-source history.

A collection of stories written by Vets during the 40s & 50s, probably for magazines like 'True' and
'Cavalier'.

They are just the kind of stories that everyone is trying to get from the WWII vets now that they
are passing away.
